I actually made my own Hanukiah.  Grin
I'm from Sweden but I've been living in England for a year
now and I dedicated it to my love for Stockholm.  Smiley
The black and white pattern is the same pattern as the
main square Plattan in Stockholm City and there's a praying
Jew for every day of Hanukkah.

How I did it:
I used a tin Hanukiah that I got for almost nothing at a
Jewish bazaar (at the flea market section).
I sprayed it with black matte spray paint, let it dry.
I glued on laminated paper (the black and white pattern)
and then cut out and laminated the praying Jews, glued
them on and let it all dry.

So, what do you think?
Shmate or geld?

What a great way to show your love for home and Temple all at once. I love how mod this looks. Brilliant recon. Solid Geld.

These are actually two different things.

Eizeh Yofi!  Very cool.  That is perhaps the coolest Chanukiah that I have seen since I was in college and my friend made one out of beer bottles (ok that wasn't really cool, just funny).  Keep up the good work!
